WILD changes?

Well, I heard a seven or eight-minute segment on speaking Chinese (for
English speakers). It tried to teach English speakers how to say
common phrases like "Can somebody open the door for me? and "You're
welcome," in Chinese. My conclusion was that, if Chinese speakers find
learning English half as difficult as I was finding learning these few
phrases in Chinese, there was little hope of Americans and Chinese
people ever conversing with each other.
